Mr. Ajmera's Review (A business user)

No point fidgeting with a screen that poses real difficulty both while watching videos and typing on the cramped keyboard, the portability that is offered by the smaller screen seems futile against the little value it offers with respect to functionality. I more than often choose for efficient devices like the as it present me with a robust call management; as I am hardly ever off my phone. Bluetooth file sharing is really not of much use to me, but this feature is really handy when it comes to hands-free calling.

Mrs. Iyer's Review (A homemaker)

The size of the Nokia Asha 501 makes it extremely portable, but with its tiny and cramped keypad it's really not of much use to me. I never let a special occasion pass by without recording it, right from cake compromising to dinner parties; and the Nokia Asha 501 with good recording is credited with is really recommended for me. I don't like the camera in particular, and I won't be buying the Nokia Asha 501, however good the other features might be. Smartphones with larger memory is always preferred by me; this can't even hold images and videos of I save in a single day. I always feel the more the better when it comes to smartphone storage and I would always chose the Nokia Asha 501 with extendable memory against any other smartphones that are overpriced and overloaded with confusing features.

Ishan's Review (A geek)

Although the display looks great, the tiny screen size is too awkward to please the gamer or the ardent bookworm in me. No clue what's the point of storage which can't even make enough room for my apps, leave alone my books and games. Even if your smartphone offers good amount of internal storage, extendable memory never hurt and is good to know that there's room left if you need.

Prachi's Review (A social butterfly)

The first thing I noticed in the Nokia Asha 501 was its 3 inches display. I love texting and all my friends too prefer texting over talking, so I find the screen size of the Nokia Asha 501 is very cramped. Yes, 3.2 MP is not that particularly pleasing camera resolution. You can easily go for any other smartphone with a better camera, it might even be cheaper. I love clicking pictures with my smartphone and this one doesn't seem up for it. I'd like my smartphone to do all my tasks simultaneously not just perform basic functions like browsing, messaging and emails. And I won't depend upon 2G networks for that. I don't worry charging when I are able to charge my phone with the laptop; I are able to even transfer files with this. The small 0.064 GB of the Nokia Asha 501 feels quite miserly. I don't understand the use of this storage of it can't contain all my media files.
